Cadillac DTS Presidential Limousine

The 2006 Cadillac DTS Presidential Limousine is going to roll through the nation's capital during the Presidential Inaugural Parade, hinting at the future design of the 2006 Cadillac DTS production model. The DTS will be built at the award winning Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center in Detroit, Michigan and is expected to go on sale in the third quarter of 2005. Its bold styling is reinforced by the contemporary design cues at the front and rear portions of the vehicle, with state-of-the-art LED tail lamps and jewel-like vertically oriented high-intensity xenon headlamps. The President of the United States of America will be the first person to travel in the new Cadillac DTS limousine as, according to the American tradition, the president waves from a Cadillac during parades. General Motors Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner, stated that General Motors and Cadillac were very proud to be able to write the latest chapter in American automotive history by introducing the DTS presidential limousine, showing that their historic relationship with the U.S. government had continued through the years. The limousine is dressed and handcrafted in a jet-black charcoat finish. Communication systems together with state-of-the-art proection were designed to maintain national security. Comfort and visibility are ensured by the interior, as the rear seats have an adjustable eclining feature, while the adaptive system immediatley identifies the position of the occupant and then, adjusts it in order to obtain added comfort. The exterior rear doors received presidential seals, with the U.S. flag placed on the right front fender. Aligning with Cadillac's alpha naming strategy established by the CTS, SRX, XLR and STS vehicles, the DTS is going to mark the ninth new vehicle introduced into the Cadillac portfolio since 2001.
